Visit Finland has begun a quirky marketing campaign which aims to create music from DNA.
The ‘Symphony of Extremes – Born from Finnish DNA’ initiative uses software from Professor Jonathan Middleton of the University of Tampere.

A music video will be produced towards the end of the year alongside the research.
